The megayacht Viva, from the Dutch shipyard Feadship, is announced as the largest new build of the 2021 edition with her impressive 94m and hybrid propulsion system, as required by her owner. This will allow Viva to travel a comfortable 12 knots on diesel-electric power in the pristine areas the yacht is set to explore.

Artefact is one of the world’s first superyachts to meet IMO Tier III emissions regulations. The solar panels and a large battery storage system allows the vessel to operate for a limited time with no use of internal combustion engines.
The brand-new explorer exterior was made by Michael Leach Design, the interior was penned by H2 Yacht Design.

The 70m explorer can accommodate twelve guests and seventeen crew members.
The elegant classic yacht Resilience was recently launched by ISA Yachts. With her 1400 GT, 65m Resilience has been superbly designed by Enrico Gobbi of Team for Design who also developed the interiors. She features two swimming pools (one with a countercurrent swimming system), gym, massage room with sea view, Turkish bath, outdoor cinema room, two jet skis and two tenders. The steel hull is combined to an aluminum superstructure and her layout has six cabins (plus a seventh convertible) including a full-beam owner's suite located forward on the main deck.

This year Lürssen will be displaying the latest delivery from the yard. Lürssen is known for manufacturing the largest yachts in the world but at the moment is targeting projects in the 55 to 75 meter range. Project 13800 is a first step in reestablishing the brand as a serious proposition for yachts in that size bracket as well. Designed by Bannenberg & Rowell, the fearless use of colours and textures as well as museum quality interior furniture pieces underline the approach of tremendous attention to detail – not only in the interior spaces but also in the technical areas.
The 55m Moskito, YN 19255, previously known as Project Pollux, has a Gross Tonnage of 760 GT. Her muscular exterior lines were made by Omega Architects and are characterised by 'shark-tooth' superstructure overhangs and vertical windows. The design features the latest iteration of van Oossanen’s ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form. Powered by IMO III-compliant MTU 8V 4000 M63s, it offers frugal fuel consumption of just 150 litres per hour at 11 knots. Her interior design was made by London-based studio Bannenberg & Rowell.

The 115.1-meter Ahpo (previously known as project Enzo) on 24 November 2021 left the Lürssen shipyard and embarked on her maiden voyage. The megayacht was launched by Lürssen in June. In September this bespoke yacht started her sea trials. She has been built for a repeat client who previously owned 86m Lürssen and required top-notch design and engineering as well as seagoing comfort for his family. For the exterior and interior design, he once again chose design office Nuvolari Lenard. Moran Yacht & Ship managed and supervised the project, bringing with them their wide spectrum of experience and consolidated knowledge.“The owner’s brief was demanding. However, we believe our engineering expertise has surpassed his wishes to own a yacht that many years from now will be timeless and yet still ahead of its time. Our thanks, of course, go to the good design and communications with the Designers Nuvolari Lenard and to Moran Yacht & Ship, who oversaw the build on behalf of the owner, as well as the Lürssen project team,” says Peter Lürssen.Ahpo is equipped with state-of-the art technology and engineering systems. For instance, a heat recovery system in the generators heats the water for the pool, leading to reduced electrical power and emissions, while dynamic positioning enables electronic anchoring in sensitive and remote areas, protecting the seabed and allowing for safe mooring regardless of water depth.Lürssen is a German shipyard with headquarters in Bremen-Vegesack and shipbuilding facilities in Lemwerder, Berne and Bremen-Aumund. Founded in 1875, Lürssen is one of the world's leading builders of custom luxury superyachts and has launched many of the largest yachts in the global fleet.Credits: Lürssen

Silent-Yachts will be the first boat builder to date to design and build boats for the use of a kite sail system. The new Silent 60 solar powered catamaran carries 42 solar panels for 17 kWp of solar energy to power two electric motors of up to 2x340kw. Backed up by a battery capacity of up to 286 kWh, the yacht can cruise efficiently with zero emissions solely on solar power for up to 100 nautical miles a day for weeks. To further improve its green credentials and range, for longer crossings the first Silent 60 is also fitted with a compact 9 or 13 sq. m kite wing. The kite wing is optionally available on all Silent models.After inflating the kite, it is released overboard to drift away on the surface of the water. Pulling on the lines it launches into the air and once it reaches the optimal flight height, it begins to trace a figure “8” in the sky and generates power to pull the yacht.If you want to stop kiting, the automated app controls move the kite to a position right above the boat where it has the least pull on the line. From here it can be winched down electrically and collapsed over the foredeck ready for stowage.“The main advantages of a kite over a conventional sail system are that it does not throw shade on the solar panels, does not need a tall mast, and generates up to 10 times more power per square metre than a traditional sail. In addition to that it saves about 1,5 tons of weight compared to conventional rigg and costs much less,” says Michael Köhler, Silent-Yachts founder and CEO.The first Silent 60 has four guest cabins on the lower deck, including a spacious master suite, but other layout solutions are available. There are numerous social areas on board, including an airy main salon, an aft cockpit, a cosy bow area and a flybridge. The yacht also has high headroom throughout (up to 2.32m in the main salon).Thanks to a draft of under 1m the yacht can access shallow bays, a crucial consideration for cruising grounds in the Caribbean and South East Asia. Two swimming platforms in the stern can be extended on owner’s request to carry a pair of electric jet skis. The lifting hydraulic platform between the two platforms can carry a 4 m tender.The Silent 60 is designed to go everywhere as a true bluewater cruising yacht. The solar-electric system is configured to power all the on-board systems without the need of fossil fuels for a generator. Featuring a new, high-performance hull form with a longer waterline and reverse bow, the yacht has a cruising speed of 6-8 knots, but can reach 20 knots if needed.Silent-Yachts is producing the world’s first fully solar-sustainable oceangoing production catamaran yachts. They are powered exclusively by solar energy and capable of cruising up to 100 miles per day. In 2009, founders Heike and Michael Köhler, who have spent 6,000 days cruising more than 75,000 miles all around the world, launched the Solarwave 46, the first fully self-sufficient blue-water catamaran after years of testing solar-powered propulsion, and they have been building boats ever since.
